I recently reformatted my hard drive and reloaded Windows XP. I've since lost my audio driver and when I look at Device Manager, I see question marks in the "other devices" listings, so I click on "audio device on high definition audio bus", then try to re install the driver, but I get a message that it cannot be found.  I've attached a screen capture for reference. 


Is there something I may be missing? Is there a generic driver I can use? The computer is an IBM ThinkCentre model without separate sound and audio cards.

Any help would be appreciated!

Visit the Manufacturers website for your particular make/model computer and download the proper drivers.


Looks like you need Chipset, USB, Audio and Video drivers for starters.
